 PCE Turbo Stick - Import Sale Offer US$68.00

NCS Product Synopsis
Original Release in Japan: October 01, 1988
«©NCSX» Brand new and factory boxed PC-Engine Turbo Stick for the PC-Engine which was NEC's first and last joystick controller for their own console. NCS recalls the sentiment in Japan back in the day when joypads were looked upon more favorably than clunky joysticks which required a lap in addition to two hands. The Turbo Stick originally retailed for JPY6800 which we considered too high given the market situation in 1988. The stick looks like a plastic toy but it's comfortable to grasp and has a turbo-fire function which can be adjusted by sliding the buttons located on the upper right corner of the joystick.

Product Condition
NCS' remaining inventory is brand new and factory boxed in the original cardboard container with Styrofoam retainer within. The condition of the packaging is in good structural shape but please note that there are slight signs of wear and weathering caused by decades of storage. The joysticks inside are however in brand new and never-used condition. Even though they're over 20 years old at this point, the joystick and the plastic packaging are still fresh and probably eternal. PVC/ABS never dies. Please note however that the tape which NEC used on the sides of the box has yellowed, deteriorated, and disintegrated.

   Orders are welcome to ship same-day (M-F) if placed before 4PM EDT.
